Probably a musical or liturgical term
A Psalm of David.

1 O  Lord, crebuke me not in your anger,
nor ddiscipline me in your wrath.
2Be gracious to me, O  Lord, for I am languishing;
eheal me, O  Lord ffor my bones are troubled.
3My gsoul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O  Lordhhow long?
4 Turn, O  Lord, deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5For in ideath there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?
6 I am jweary with my kmoaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
7My leye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.
8 mDepart from me, all you nworkers of evil,
for the  Lord ohas heard the sound of my weeping.
9The  Lord has heard my pplea;
the  Lord accepts my prayer.
10All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall qturn back and be put to shame in a moment.
